Hello, Challenge Based Hiring

Build Your Portfolio, Build Your Skills, Build Your Connections

Nexwave is a challenge-based hiring platform, where we connect students with challenges sourced from real world companies. Instead of relying on the traditional cover letter/resume hiring model, we instead focus on the skills seen in the workplace such as technical, creativity, and presentation skills. Our platform is designed to create opportunities where you can concurrently build and share your portfolio.
